USA and Turkey

The USA places nuclear missiles in Turkey aimed at the USSR across the Black Sea. An attempt is made to place nuclear missiles in Greece; these are removed after protests from the USSR.

These events go largely unreported in the West. A few years later, the USSR would attempt to place nuclear missiles in Cuba aimed at the USA. The second missile event would be reported in the Western media as The Cuban Missile Crisis.
